Not only is this photo inspiration peach and green, but it is also about incorporating clay and ceramics into a wedding. Jenneva and Elliott are the happy couple and their plan is a lovely barn wedding.
A terrific destination for a barn wedding is Leeds! Not only is the city known for its fabulous nightlife but getting married in Leeds means places like rustic barns, amazing wine bars, cosy pubs and for outside, glorious gardens ready for hosting. Adding a personal touch to the ceremony and reception is exactly what Jenneva and Elliott plan to do. Take their inspiration and have fun with it!
Details for a Peach and Green Wedding
We'd like to take a deeper dive into some peach and green wedding ideas to give other brides-to-be who've also taken a liking to the theme a reference point for their own big days. The "pretty as a peach" palette suits summer nuptials because it reflects the season's full beauty.
Summer brings with it little bursts of joy backed up by the flowers and plants in full bloom. The warmth of the pigment intertwined with green exudes a prettiness that can be formal, casual, or fall somewhere in between. It also works well for couples like Jenneva and Elliott's case who choose to embrace their artistry as wedding inspiration.

Colour Palettes for a Peach and Green Wedding
The peach and green colour palette is a sweet and natural choice, without necessarily being overpowering. It highlights the romantic tone of the big day when blended with dainty, ceramic-coloured details. The cheerful colour can easily brighten up any space by introducing much-needed pops of colour and creating various focal points.
It’s a simple wedding colour combination that simply works because peaches pair well with natural hues. Jenneva and Elliot’s idea to blend the peach and green palette with sprinkles of ceramic cream/white tones completes the delicate look. Coral, hints of gold, and mint green are welcome additions to the palette.
What to Look for in Venue for a Peach and Green Wedding
The peach and green palette is summer-perfect, and that equally means it's best highlighted against the backdrop of some of the season's best wedding venues. It's an unwritten rule that "summer and outdoor" go together. A garden is an ideal setting for a couple to set out on a peachy start.
For a couple set on traveling for their nuptials, a peach-perfect beach wedding sounds like a wonderful idea. Countryside hayfields, vineyards, lakefront estates, farm-to-table venues, and hillside locations are other suitable spaces for peach and green weddings. In Jenneva and Elliott's case, we imagine that they would prioritise venues decked out with clay and ceramic features.
Wedding Dresses & Accessories for a Peach and Green Wedding
Jenneva and her bridesmaids will have lots of fun picking out wedding dresses for her peach and green wedding. A traditional white gown always steals the show, but if she wanted something different, an off-white outfit is a great alternative. In either case, accessories in complementary shades of green and peach tie into the overall theme.
The style of the wedding also determines what gown silhouette works for the occasion. For instance, a ballgown-style wedding dress with all the fairytale-approved trimmings is perfect for an elegant peach affair hosted at a vineyard. On the other hand, a simple, floaty A-line gown is ideal for a hillside or lakefront ceremony.
Menswear for a Peach and Green Wedding
The hard truth is that menswear is often an after-thought and most grooms find themselves settling for traditional wedding choices. For an artistic couple like Jenneva and Elliott, we don't see it being the case. They seem like an artistically-inclined pair who would creatively fuse the colour palette into the men's wedding ensembles.
A light gray suit brings out the softer side of the theme and gives room to play around with peach as well as cream accents. Introduce the cheerful colour through elements like bowties, patterned ties, and pocket squares. Breathable fabrics like cotton, linen, and wool-linen blends work for summer weddings.
Reception Decor for a Peach and Green Wedding
Again, Jenneva and Elliott seem like a couple who would deck out their reception venue with plenty of DIY and handmade wedding decor items. Natural textures displayed through wooden centrepieces, chalkboards, hessian, and ceramics favour a peach and green wedding.
Include DIY mason jars, ceramic vases, and clay pots into the mix. Paint them in shades of apricot, mint green, and cream for a rustic and chic appeal. Touches of lustrous gold accents also blend harmoniously with the peach and green wedding theme. The gold accents are best introduced through pieces like candle holders, mason jar frames, and wedding menus presented in picture frames.
Bouquets & Boutonnieres a Peach and Green Wedding
The wedding bouquets and boutonnieres should ideally borrow from the peach and green colour palette. The bride's bouquet can be fashioned using an arrangement of white mini calla lilies, coral peonies, green hydrangea, white stock, and peach garden roses wrapped with hessian or a peach-coloured satin ribbon.
Add some seeded eucalyptus, stalks of peach spray roses, and more green foliage for the floral centrepieces. A white calla lily, pink rose, and seeded eucalyptus boutonniere works for the groom and bridesmaids. The same arrangement is perfect for pinning at the back for the ceremony chairs and also creating the wedding arch.
Food for a Peach and Green Wedding
A peachy affair should naturally have a refreshingly peach-perfect menu in store. Serve signature drinks, like Peach Bellinis and Mint Lime Mojitos, while welcoming guests to your peach and green reception. This is also the perfect occasion to have a sweet table loaded with a cream, apricot, and mint-coloured macarons tower.
Cupcakes covered with apricot and mint icing and a naked cake decorated with fruits as well as matching flowers are also great additions to the sweet table. Summer wedding food also works for such an occasion. An ice cream bar, grazing tables with nuts, fruits, cheese, and dips as well as finger food are great options.
Table Setting Style for a Peach and Green Wedding
The tablescape is where you want to allow the green and peach wedding scheme to reign supreme. In this case, ceramic china, peach and green colour-blocked linen, and gold-toned cutlery are wonderful choices for the wedding table setting. You don't want to go overboard, and the white Chiviari chairs draped with hessian are suitable for the occasion.
Choosing a ceramic cake stand, ceramic pitchers, and ceramic mugs are other ways to incorporate Jenneva and Elliott's artistic flair to the tablescape. Add colourful marshmallows or cookies displayed in acrylic jars to further enhance the green and peach colour palette on each table.
Wedding Invitations for a Peach and Green Wedding
A rustic and charming suite works for peach and green wedding invitations. Think along the lines of including bird details, bunting, and adding some hints of hessian to the overall presentation. Peach, cream, and green work perfectly as the base colours for the wedding stationery suite. Choose a handwritten font style in either green or peach to contrast with the chosen stationary or envelope colour.
The effort that goes into creating wedding invites pays off because you can use the same style across other wedding stationery. That includes the wedding program, menu, name cards, and other cute little signs sprinkled around the wedding venue.
Peach and Green Wedding Inspiration (reader request)
Jenneva and Elliott are getting married in August in Michigan and are having a barn wedding. When Jenneva requested this wedding inspiration board she let me know that she and Elliott are both ceramic artists and that all the artist themed wedding inspiration they keep finding is for painters. They want to somehow incorporate their love of clay and ceramics into their big day while keeping the whole look DIY, slightly casual, and with a colour palette of peach and green. This charming duo is even considering making ceramic favours and platters for their big day!
There are so many ways to incorporate ceramics into your wedding! The first way is as wedding favours. The little ceramic hearts shown in the inspiration board above with ‘thank you’ etched into them are sweet and a lovely handmade gift of thanks for your guests. These would be perfect placed atop menus at each reception place setting, or you can even go a step further and have them double as place cards/escort cards and personalize them with the name of each guest.
Another nice touch is to create a ceramic platter (shown on the inspiration board below) and use it as a guest book. Include your names and the date of your wedding on it and leave lots of space for everyone to sign! Ceramic table numbers are another way to share your art (also below) as well as a clay cake topper, cake stand, centrepiece containers, and a ceramic bowl for the ring bearer to carry the rings.
Congratulations to Jenneva and Elliott on your engagement and I hope that these inspiration boards help! Brides-to-be: don’t forget that you can request your own here.
